@Home Lander: Happy to help. Good catch! GoodnightmushTalk 23:32, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Vandalism only accounts[edit]

My understanding is that if a new account immediately begins to vandalize and has no non-vandalism edits, it can be reported and blocked as a vandalism-only account, without a need for warnings. Am I wrong in this understanding? Thank you --‡ Єl Cid of ᐺalencia ᐐT₳LKᐬ 21:22, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

@El cid, el campeador: Hi El Cid. Certainly, and thanks for the report! In the case you're referring to, the user's edits weren't especially constructive, but I also don't think they were so blatantly disruptive that they warrant blocking without warning (e.g., first edit). Admittedly, the username doesn't inspire optimism that the account is intended for serious or future use, so I think a short leash is fine and I would block after any further disruption.

Administrators' newsletter – February 2018[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (January 2018).

Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC has closed with a consensus that candidates at WP:RFA must disclose whether they have ever edited for pay and that administrators may never use administrative tools as part of any paid editing activity, except when they are acting as a Wikipedian-in-Residence or when the payment is made by the Wikimedia Foundation or an affiliate of the WMF.
  • Editors responding to threats of harm can now contact the Wikimedia Foundation's emergency address by using Special:EmailUser/Emergency. If you don't have email enabled on Wikipedia, directly contacting the emergency address using your own email client remains an option.

Technical news

  • A tag will now be automatically applied to edits that blank a page, turn a page into a redirect, remove/replace almost all content in a page, undo an edit, or rollback an edit. These edits were previously denoted solely by automatic edit summaries.
